Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a pre-processing dedicated to polarimetric IR imager in order to help the discrimination between natural and man made objects. This pre-processing has been developed in the frame of the DREAM European Esprit program supported by the European Commission/DGIII. Based on an analysis of the polarimetric images triplet the developed algorithm performed an automatic pre-detection of zone of interest containing suspect objects. Results containing images of the polarimetric feature as well as detected zones are presented. It thus clearly demonstrates the usefulness of the technique in the frame of a multi-sensor system dedicated for mine and UXO detection.
